Closing the library one morning a week is one of several actions the City has taken to shore up its budget as a result of the lagging economy. With this closure, the Library will be open 66 hours per week.

“Along with other City departments, the Library will be operating on a reduced budget next year,” said Margaret Barnes, director of library services.

“Although we will have fewer staff, our goal is to provide the same kind of competent, caring service that Tigard residents have come to expect. We hope the public will continue to support the Library and appreciate their understanding during these tight economic times.”

The Tigard Public Library is located at 13500 SW Hall Blvd in Tigard.
